    Compiling in Linux

    OK, so I switched to Ubuntu (accidentally), so I figured I might as well start developing in Linux since I like it better then Windows anyway. So I got the most recent Nightly Build of Code::Blocks and made a little test console project just to see how things were different. I selected the compiler GNU GCC, but when I tried to compile the program I got this error:

    /bin/sh: g++: not found

    I looked in bin and there is a sh file, but I don't really know what the deal is here. Anyone know what I need to do?

    Thanks a ton,
    David

    You do have g++ installed? Is it in your $PATH?

    Try just typing something like this from a console.
    Code:
    $ g++ --version
    $ # or, better yet,
    $ whereis g++
    dwk

    Seek and ye shall find. quaere et invenies.
